Martyr Barlaam of Caesarea

Commemorated on November 19

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Barlaam, O Lord, / through his sufferings has received an incorruptible crown from You, our God. / For having Your strength, he laid low his adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through his intercessions, save our souls!

Troparion — Tone 4

Armed with youthful fervor, / you endured martyrdom in old age and glorified Christ. / You offered Him your right hand as a whole burnt offering / and your holy soul as a blameless sacrifice. / Intercede that all may be granted forgiveness, Great-martyr Barlaam.

Kontakion — Tone 3

Though weak with old age you vanquished the evil one, / in your mighty contest, O Barlaam. / You endured the rack like one without a body, / and steadfastly endured the burning of your hand. / Therefore, God the Word has crowned you with a crown of glory.
